Grants of up to $50,000 to Massachusetts nonprofit organizations, municipalities, and IHEs for activities to plan a cultural facility. Applicants are required to submit an intent to apply prior to submitting a full application. Funding is intended to support research and fact-finding activities as well as analysis that assist applicant organizations in their efforts prior to the implementation stage of the proposed project.
The purpose of the Feasibility & Technical Assistance grants is to help managers and board members of cultural organizations get the objective information and analysis they need before they commit their organization’s energies and financial resources to a facilities project. Grants support costs and expenses related to overall planning and feasibility for a proposed eligible project.
Types of planning and technical assistance may include but are not necessarily limited to: Architectural and engineering plans, business plans and market research as it relates to a new facility, capital campaign feasibility studies, comprehensive facility maintenance plans and new project feasibility studies.
Organizations can also plan for Universal Design solutions to accessibility challenges in their facilities. Organizations can work with a consultant who will identify possible solutions that meet ADA, 504, and Massachusetts Architectural Access Board (MAAP) requirements, but go beyond to provide solutions that are an improvement for all visitors.
All projects must provide evidence that they meet these five statutory criteria to be considered for a Cultural Facilities Fund Grant.
